Performance Evaluation Process

Review Period:
January 1 , 2014 – December 31 , 2014
 No separate login required! The online PE system is now
available through myUK with just a single click.
 Process for completing PEs for Transferring Employees! It is
the supervisor’s responsibility to complete the employee’s PE
depending on where the employee worked for the majority of
the calendar year.
 Campus Core Competencies were part of the PE process last
year but we were not required to rate employees on these
competencies. This year we are required to rate employees on
the campus core competencies, however the ratings will not
count towards the employees’ overall PE scores.

1. Once PEs are available on Dec 2, supervisors
should check to ensure they have access to the PEs
for their direct reports.
- Contact A&S HR/Payroll Office with reporting issues
2. Employees and supervisors should review the MJRs
and Essential Functions to ensure accuracy. Any
discrepancies should be discussed with supervisor.
- Contact A&S HR/Payroll Office to update/correct any MJRs
and/or Essential Functions
- Position descriptions requiring changes in duties of 50% or
more will need prior review/approval from the Chief of Staff
before changes can be submitted to the UK HR office.
3. Job Standards should be determined by the supervisor
with input from the employee before the employee
completes his/her Self Evaluation. Job standards from
last year will not roll to this year’s PE. If job standards
from the 2013 PE are appropriate for this review
period, they can be copied from the 2013 PE which are
still available.

the PE after the second -level review/approval
Step 8 –

Meeting and then “Send to Employee for Signature ”

 While Self Evaluations are required for each A&S staf f, it is up
to the supervisor whether or not their direct reports are
required to self-rate themselves.
 As in previous years, perfect overall ratings of 4.0 require a
letter of justification from the supervisor ( and possibly
second-level supervisor if appropriate ) to the Dean.
 If an employee receives a rating of “1” on a specific MJR, a
Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) must be completed.
